Lions vs. Bears injury report: Detroit hopes to get defensive players back Monday night

Frederick Breedon

As the Lions prepare for Monday night's NFC North showdown with the Bears, they'll hope to add members of their defense from the injury report.

When the Detroit Lions head to Chicago to face the Bears on Monday night, they could be adding members of their defense back from injury.

Starting cornerback Bill Bentley returned to practice Friday on a limited basis after missing time earlier in the week with a shoulder injury, and defensive end Ronnell Lewis was a full participant after being limited previously with an eye injury.

Elsewhere, the statuses of defensive tackle Corey Williams, linebacker Stephen Tulloch, safety Louis Delmas, cornerback Jacob Lacey and defensive end Cliff Avril are all uncertain after they were all -- save for Lacey, who did not practice -- limited in practice time this week.

Offensively, wide receiver Titus Young and tight end Brandon Pettigrew were also limited participants in practice this week, and their statuses also remain unclear heading into Monday night.

On the Bears side, wide receiver/kick returner Devin Hester didn't practice earlier this week with a quad injury and remains questionable Friday.

The Lions and Bears square off Monday night at Soldier Field, kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. CT.
